Probably not. But it's still worth watching. Julietta weak? I loved it. I've not seen all of Almodovar's films but this is one of his best in my opinion. Up there with 'Talk to Her' They're probably not for you if you think this was boring. Thanks for these, I can totally see that the last shot of the spirit of the beehive represents a new beginning - opening the windows (which all looks like it has a fresher feel to the aesthetic rather than the stifled yellow look in previous scenes) Wow, thank you. Will seek that out. So much to learn about the subject. I have lined up El Sur to watch, which is also highly rated. Have you seen any other Jim Jarmusch movies? Aaaahhhh, you didn't understand it. So you'd give this film zero out of 10? Just my take on it really. I've no idea if that's what the Director was aiming for. It's a good film though. Yes, the ending in my opinion shows there is light at the end of the tunnel - the wolf leaves Lazarro and will strive to make goodness in another community. Lazarro is the embodiment of Lazarus from the bible and St. Francis of Assisi - who as legend has it, persuaded a wolf to stop menancing the livestock of a community in return for being fed. Lazarro tried and tried to be a servant to the da Luna family (da luna translates as moon) in an effort to make them good people. It is naive but Lazarro knows no different. He failed in this respect and the last shot shows the wolf moving on in true Littlest Hobo style for pastures new. Nice. I'm going to give Secret Garden a go. Thanks. Thanks - Have you got a top 3 K-Dramas that are "must watch tv" ? Oh it's absolutely worth a watch. But it has elements that are non linear, meta, etheral and very cerebral. It's challenging. The package was from the Troll community in Finland that they spoke about earlier in the film. It is therefore presumably an invitation for Tina to join them and finally be her real self. Beautiful, beautiful film. And then 'Lilya-4-ever' And then 'Broken Circle Breakdown' And then 'Head On' And then 'Blue Valentine' And then 'Vagabond' And then 'Mouchette' And then watch them all again. Ah well. You can't win 'em all. I really liked Lean on Pete too. But The Rider just clicked with me - the setting, the harshness, the reality. All done perfectly. T H E M E S But was Boyse's body one of the ones he put in a spacesuit and threw out the airlock? I'm not sure it was. I think he only discarded the bodies that had died on the ship.
